David Lindley performs music that redefines the word "eclectic." Lindley is well known for his many years as the featured accompanist with Jackson Browne as well as work with Warren Zevon and other rock musicians, and as leader of his own band El Rayo-X. He has worked extensively in other genres as well, performing with artists as varied as Curtis Mayfield, to Dolly Parton. He has long championed the concept of world music. David has mastered such a wide variety of instruments that Acoustic Guitar magazine referred to Lindley, not as a multi-instrumentalist, but instead as a "maxi-instrumentalist" in a cover story about his career to date in 2005.
The David Lindley electro-acoustic performance effortlessly combines American folk, blues, and bluegrass traditions with elements from African, Arabic, Asian, Celtic, Malagasy, and Turkish musical sources. Lindley incorporates an incredible array of stringed instruments including but not limited to Kona and Weissenborn Hawaiian lap steel guitar, Turkish saz and chumbus, Middle Eastern oud, and Irish bouzouki. The eye-poppingly clad "Mr. Dave's" uncanny vocal mimicry and demented sense of humor make his onstage banter a highlight of the show.
